Re: BKs New Car

Driven one, well an FR-S, did like, but not for what they're asking for it. I'd rather just have a 2 seater at that point rather than a pointless backseat which people having legs couldn't use. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/p__/images/9/9f/Blonde_Legolas.jpeg/revision/latest?cb=20160401084746...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Gold Cloud in for servicing. Sunroof rattle and what sounds like tranny whine (high rope). Got a loaner which is even more clouderific than my Gold Cloud: a pearly white cloud RX 350.

Re: The beast has come...

was the show on or near Mustang Alley / 9-Mile Road in Ferndale?
